its-a-mad-mad-mad-mad-world-1200-1200-67

1 a.m.  It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963).  This Stanley Kramer comedy has its moments.  My favourites are those with Ethel Merman, Terry-Thomas, Jonathan Winters, Arnold Stang, Marvin Kaplan and Jimmy Durante.

4:15 p.m.  The Asphalt Jungle (1950).  Terrific John Huston crime drama.  I have a couple of its lobby cards.  

Replaced in Canada with So Big (1953).

Oh, GOODY!

Now we get to see STERLING HAYDEN'S HAT and why Eddie Muller thinks it's so "cool".   :rolleyes:

Whatta  MAROON!

Pretty sure this'll be a standard, NON-ALLEY midday showing of the movie, no intro or anything. Have they done THE KILLING on NOIR ALLEY?

Not that I know of.  But in one of Muller's between movie "fillers" he talks about the role Fedoras play in the genre and goes on about how he thinks how Hayden wears his in this movie is his favorite movie Fedora.  He's such a p u t z.

10 a.m.  Popeye: My Pop, My Pop (1940).

noon.  Night and the City (1950).  Richard Widmark excels in this crime drama shot on location in London.

First rate noir with Widmark as a more nuanced,  but still very smarmy,   noir protagonist. 

The British actors,  Googie Witners  and Francis L. Sullivan also provide solid performances.       (the 20th Century Fox contract players,  Gene Tierney  and Hugh Marlowe do there part but don't really add much).

Jules Dassin is the director and the pacing of the film and how everything plays out is done well.     This was his  4th noir,  after Brute Force,   The Naked City, and Thieves Highway.

He would also direct the French noir Rififi 5 years later after being blacklisted in the USA.

It's a couple of days away, but I noticed there's a hole in TCM's monthly schedule at 8:00 PM Tuesday (or at least, there was when I downloaded it at the beginning of the month).  In that slot is what looks to be the TCM premiere of The Shocking Miss Pilgrim, starring Betty Grable as the first female typist.  MoviecollectorOH doesn't have it on his page of when movies ran on TCM, presumably because of that hole in the monthly schedule.
